  • Alleged iPhone 5 Cases Suggest Great Similarity to iPhone 4


    Alibaba is showing off in its listings what's rumored to be images of new iPhone 5 cases.

    Although there's obviously no confirmation of such "legitimacy," the images at least appear to corroborate what we've been hearing for some time about the purported design of the forthcoming iPhone 5. Specifically, the changes between the most recent generations of the Apple handset won't be drastically different.

    Last week, Wiley discussed the new engineering images that supposedly show the iPhone 5 with an edge-to-edge screen. As Wiley concluded, if these images do prove to be genuine then the iPhone 5 may not see a significant change in case design. The new images from Alibaba, which has a fairly decent track record of leaking accurate case images, suggest that widespread suspicions about the iPhone 5 may be correct. That is, the forthcoming iPhone refresh will bear a striking external resemblance to the iPhone 4, with the exception of a larger display and edge-to-edge glass.

    Per Apple's annual summer tradition, the iPhone 5 is expected to be unveiled this June.

Now that we can keep things simple, why not? Assuming that there will be no LTE in the next iPhone, it will be called "iPhone 5." If they do add LTE, which they won't, they might call it "iPhone 4G," but "iPhone 4G[S]" would be another generation beyond that, assuming that they would want to continue that way.
      Way to play nice, douche. I'm merely saying that calling the next iPhone the iPhone 5 like it's already predetermined when it makes more sense to say 5th iPhone, next iPhone, or what have you. Also, why should we assume that LTE won't be in the next iPhone? It seems that a lot of phone manufacturers are taking advantage of having yet another selling point and incredible speeds on the iPhone would be one. It's going to happen eventually. I don't understand your logic of Apple waiting another year to put out an LTE capable iPhone. It could even be another marketing tool for AT&T, "We have 4G speeds, and it plays nice with your iPhone 4G." (or whatever it would be called). But again, I don't know when AT&T plans on rolling out LTE.

      And the reason I said iPhone 4G (or S) was because there was rumors of the iPad being called the iPad S or something because it didn't get a huge update.

      I'm not trolling, and I'm not here to pick a fight with you or anyone

      Does everybody seriously think the next iPhone will not run on att/verizon 4g, lte etc.? In my head I was thinking this should be a no brainer, a screen that is 10% wider and a dual core processor hardly seem worth updating in a phone.

      This would put apple a full year behind, assuming their next update would be 2012.

      As an iPhone user for 4 years on att, t mobile, and now verizon, I would seriously consider a switch to an android phone that runs on a faster network.

      1. AT&T doesn't roll out 4g until the end of this year.
      2. 4G is really not that much faster than 3g.
      3. Apple would not put a LTE chip in the iPhone until it was a much more popular network because all it would do is sit there and drain the battery.
      4. ?
      5. Profit.

      ya dood not that much faster, only 6x faster..................

      3g = AT&T wins PCWorld's 3G speed test : The Technology Chronicles

      4g = Verizon's 4G Network Doubles AT&T Speeds - Mobiledia

      Just like that 300mbps router of yours maxes out at about 135mbps. It's called real-world testing. Not just whatever crap the corporations get when standing 6 inches from the tower with no one else on the network.


      Plus, I've said it before and I'll say it again. "4G", isn't even 4G. It's much closer to 3.2G.

      I'll bide my time with the new iPhone. I love the 4g, tremendous phone, once all the bugs has been worked out. I'think I'll it a few months after being released before I consider getting one.

      I think it's funny that someone not understanding that one thing makes them a "complete idiot" to you.

      Im a little confused. Currently I own an Iphone 4 on Verizon. My dad owns a Samsung Galaxy (or whatever it is called on Verizon), our internet speed on 3g is pretty much identical.

      Are you saying someone that owns an android phone running on a 4g network will be slower?

      Thanks,

      I agree with you and believe we should always use the most correct way to refer to it (5th gen iPhone is fine). All I was saying was that the other guy is a complete idiot for attempting to "correct" you with an even more stupid name than the ones you were correcting.

      IOW:
      1) You speak out about stupid assumptions for the next model's name
      2) He replies with an even worse, OBVIOUSLY incorrect name
      3) I call him out for being an even bigger idiot than the ones you were correcting

      See?

      I'm a big fan of "if you don't know what you're talking about, STFU." Bad input isn't valued for the sake of encouraging input (at least it shouldn't be).
